The ‘Bosnia 1992-1995’ book history
A group of photographers and writers who had covered the war in Bosnia decided to come back to Sarajevo on April 6th, 2012, to commemorate the war and re-engage with the country. They also decided to make a photo book about the war. Jon Jones (photo editor), Rémy Ourdan (text editor), and Gary Knight (production, in collaboration with Ziyah Gafic) took the project on. They pulled together the work of over 50 photographers and writers who all volunteered their material. ‘Bosnia 1992-1995’ hardback book contains 248 pages that includes the work of many of the leading photographers and writers of the time. It charts the course of the Bosnian war from its beginning in April 1992 to the Dayton Peace Accord in December 1995.
